Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : March 11th 2009
20 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 12, 2009 MB NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Rae Jones has published a new book. Politics prompted some purple prose FORMER Ashfield mayor Rae Jones has just published a new book of poetry called Blow Out. Mr Jones stepped down from Ashfield Council in September to get back to his ''first love'', literature. He said his many years as a councillor had given him some literary inspiration. ''I have published several novels and a book of short stories as well as poetry before I went into council politics,'' Mr Jones said. ''Being involved in local poli- tics has deepened my under- standing of human motivation. ''Some people have found my writing disturbing but making society uncomfortable is an im- portant aspect of the artistic process.'' Associate professor David Brooks of Sydney University's English department will launch Blow Out at 6pm on Sunday at the Summer Hill Hotel. Prize-winning poet Alan Wearne will act as MC and local band Sydney Rhythm Riders will provide some musical en- tertainment. Blow Out is published through Island Press. Live Life and join in the fun LOCAL councils in the Inner West will host a range of activi- ties as part of Seniors' Week next week. Seniors' Week runs from March 15-22.
